to use investment analogies. you never want to put all your eggs in one basket even if an apple looked like a year or two ago a great place to put all your money, but now it's not so good. diversification always works better, and i think diversification in political philosophy works well too. >> great. we have time for one more question. could we have one up front? >> i'm glad you used the example from europe, because i'm european. i was born in country where we had two prime ministers, one zech, one from the slovac part. the country was called czechoslovakia, and it doesn't exist anymore. one way to compromise is split the country. it's a disadvantage which i wanted to mention. but from my point of view, from my european point of view is that the elections in the u.s. are too often, and the elections are too expensive. and it's maybe easier solution just to give ceilings for the budgets for the elections and not to have the elections so often. because if you're a member of the congress and you want to be reelected, you just have to -- you need strong statements. you need quick, strong

and a half in particular in iraq and afghanistan. >> [inaudible] >> who is worse? well, that's apples and oranges. but what you're asking is we have the moral authority to intervene, and i would say that we must. and that's how we reclaim the moral authority is to intervene in places where we can, where people want us to. and this is not an invasion of the drc. u.s. troops are in congo alongside the u.n. at the invitation of the congolese government, and it's not the faux invitation that baghdad extended the united states after the invasion. no, i mean, really congo needs help defeating this armed threat. and the way the united states can reclaim its moral authority as the world's leading military power is to use it wisely and for the right reasons. we shouldn't because we have erred, because we have sinned we should not cease doing good. the united states has done wrong, and this is how we can make up for it. >> okay. >> well, i understand your point, and it's a very good one. thank you, sir. >> yeah. i'll call -- i wanted to just add two words just to say that up until now it will,

world examples. i remember very well the question with the apple pickers. thank you for complimenting they do -- they're the ones doing the work. i know, a lot of meetings and phone calls with you and others and number of -- they did leg work and i worry about the crops too. it's a significant part of our basis. the h2, a program is open to everyone prayer and seasonal employers. we take care of apple pickers but then we have dairy farmers and senator franken and i noted that you can't tell the cows belle back in six months to milk you again. they don't react well to that. and so how would the proposed agricultural work visa legislation help seasonal and year-around workers? >> sir, i think it would definitely help in many ways. allowing for the workers not only be here around year, milk the cows. i think when you face both visa whether they come for one employer or the ability to move between employers. all of that seems veried a venn teenage use and take care of dairy farmers. when i look how the h2a works today and i see that poultry, some of the farms are year-around they have the

affordable, make sure we try to control costs, and at the same time apple five the universe of what americans would be for the covered in the present or not. it creat e necessity for a copy of physicians encourage. and cutting this particular field, i understand the challenges and trade-offs, is just undermining the very essence of some of the goals that we have intended under the affordable care act. ho bth as we move forward in our deliberations. thank you, madam secretary,. >> madam secretary, i would like to just ask a bit more about the concept of one-stop shopping one resource center, one place for businesses to go to so that i have to deal with so many agencies with respect to the invitation of the affordable care act. does that make any sense to? >> senator, there will be a one stop shop with the shop exchange up and running in january 14. so business owners will be able to into the marketplace through a one stop area, get the information about what is available, have a choice of plans. is the business owner qualifies for the employer tax credit based on the number of employees and th

quickly because i know that apple has run. on north korea and the peninsula, i will just repeat again, president park has a new policy called trust politic, and she wants to reach out to the north. she can't do that in the middle of this kind of process. my hope would be that the chinese will come to the table in a way that they never have before. that we can work with the chinese to redefine what's in all of our interests, which is a kind of stability in the peninsula moving north to denuclearization, and ultimately hopefully and integration into the community of nations. based on economic reform, which china, the united states, others could become engaged in. and that could ultimately even open up the possibility of president parks outreach to be able to have an impact. absent china coming to that table, i believe kim jong-un calculates literally calculates that i can get away with anything if china isn't going to hold me accountable. and so that's where we are stuck mr. adam kinzinger. >> thank you, mr. chairman. thank you mr. second your trick since my time as they cut down on wha
